Education & Career

AES Educational Foundation

The Audio Engineering Society Educational Foundation is dedicated to encouraging the entry of talented students into the profession of audio engineering. Since its establishment in 1984, the Foundation has awarded grants for graduate studies to hundreds of exceptional applicants, many of whom have gone on to prominent and successful careers in the profession. We offer two types of scholarships: The AESEF Graduate Studies Grants and the Mary Lea Simpson Memorial Scholarship for a Recording Engineering Student.
